Shadowhunter Tarot Card #2: Magnus Bane

Over the past couple of months, fans have been treated to the sight of many amazing Shadowhunter Chronicles-inspired tarot cards by Cassandra Jean.

Cassandra Clare shared another card–featuring Drusilla and Octavian Blackthorn from The Dark Artifices–as well as revealed that every day for the next 84 days she will be sharing the complete deck, which Jean has completed, in order.

Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … eighty-four? days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have. 

Here’s the second card:


This card corresponds to the Magician card. Magnus is the Magician, well — for obvious reasons! Many have asked why Magnus has a halo. He doesn’t: the sign over his head is the infinity sign. It is meant to signify the infinite nature of magic and comes from the original Rider-Waite Tarot. I like to think it symbolizes here that Magnus’ life is infinite as well.

Look closely for Chairman Meow, the Book of the White, and Woolsey’s snuffbox!

 There have been a lot of questions about whether or not these cards will be available for purchase, and Clare has said that they are working on it. Right now Sony Pictures owns merchandising rights for all things Shadowhunters, but she will keep us updated.
